Rescue Beauty Lounge 'Chinoise'

Hi everyone~
I have been a little slow with everything (swatches/posts/commenting), but I have been so busy with school. Finals are around the corner, so I might be a little inconsistent with my posting. Also, there is a crazy amount of rallies and protests at UCD right now. The campus is in slight chaos.
But anyways, here is a super quick swatch of Chinoise~

Here is one coat of Chinoise on my nail. It is the only thing I have on my nails (no base coat, no top coat).

I'm not a huge fan of red polishes, but I received a number of compliments when I wore it yesterday. I love the brightness of it, as well as the glossy, jelly-like finish. Between my Lippmann 'Lady is a Tramp' and 'Chinoise', I would definitely choose 'Chinoise.' It is a color that will be easy to just throw on my nails and I know it will look good.

Rating: 9/10 (Negatives: see through, high price)
